Pours thick black with a dense dark brown head - looks awesome. Aroma of chipotle that you can smell as soon as you open the bottle. Thick body, flavor of coffee and chocolate. The peppers come through throughout and have a nice bite to them. Well done. Camons (12805) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2011
Tap @ Fairbar. Pours black with a small ligh brown head leaving lashes on the side of the glass. Aroma of pepper, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and a hint of smoke. Taste is coffee, chocolate, pepper, brown sugar and a chipotte chili leaving a hot warming bite on your tonque. Full body, soft carbonation, creamy mouthfell. Well done with both good balance and a good chili bite. 200111 gunnar (9324) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2011
Bottled at Henrik, Bergen. Pours black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma of port, sweet light peated roasted malts,wood and some acidic fragrances as well. Taste is dark bitter malts with a nice chili bite at the end, ends bitter with a mix of alcohol and hot chili burn. Lovely stuff.

I really enjoyed this beer, and I like spicy food and drinks, but I cannot imagine drinking an entire bottle of this myself. The peppers begin to stick in your throat. Otherwise I would have a higher rating. blipp (9501) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle shared at Paul and Ryan’s 5,000th rate tasting. Pours near black with a tan head. Roasted malty aroma, with some peppery notes. and smoky coffee notes. The flavor has roasted malts up front, some light sweetness and a burning peppery finish. The heat isn’t too intense, but it’s definitely there. Nice.

Big smokey chocolate nose with a little it of burn. Smooth up front, but the chipotle spice catches you on the tail end . Finishes like a black permanent marker. AcctError65545 (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Shared by Sparky at RBWG. It’s chuck norris in a bottle, so if I rated it poorly I wouldn’t be alive to rate this. Luckily it poured a dark brown with aroma of spices, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is choco-spices, coffee, and peppers integrate well with the brew. Thanks Eric! SpringsLicker (3660) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2011
A tall, long lasting tan head rises out of this black bodied brew.
Rich aroma of cocoa, coffee with some smoke.
The flavor follows the aroma with a peppery, slightly hot finish.
Very well done pepper beer! I’ll have another one of these! Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
A great porter, with imperial stout thickness, chocolate, mollases, spicy peppers in the finish. Complex, carbonation right there. Masterful. MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2011
[Bottle] shared by Armin. Thanks! Pours tarry black with a large head of big bubbles. Aroma is smoky, moderately roasty and ashy, and the pepper is in the background. Flavor is nicely roasty, perfect amount of pepper spiciness hiding behind the smoke. Finish is a nice lingering heat and roast.
